Marcel The Shell With Shoes On
Nominations: Baftas 1; Oscars 1 Marcel offers 90 minutes of poignant whimsy, all of it inducing genuine laughter and tears. If it doesn’t move you, then perhaps nothing will.
Despite serious health problems caused by the late pregnancy, Frida attempts to lure him back.
Her various ploys and the way in which she comes to terms with motherhood are presented in a refreshingly entertaining and colourful way, making for a delightful comic feature debut by a Finnish director already much garlanded for her short films.
